Fort Devens Museum Hosts Speaker on ‘War and Peace in a Dangerous World’

January 30, 2019

DEVENS -- Fort Devens Museum’s guest speaker on Saturday, Feb. 16, has stepped back from his military experiences and studies to share his thinking about the “waging of war and pursuing peace” that has “defined human civilization, both ancient and modern.”

William Britton, a teacher at St. John’s Preparatory School in Danvers, addresses the topic “War and Peace in a Dangerous World: a Primer” starting at 1 p.m. The museum is on third floor of 94 Jackson Road.

Bringing to bear his own experiences as a teacher, writer and Marine Corps tank-company commander in Vietnam, Britton will examine the phenomenon of war from multiple perspectives: the warriors who fight on both sides of a conflict; the families and friends who suffer the loss of a loved one; civilians caught in the crossfire; and political and military leaders who make the decisions that lead to both war and peace.

Fort Devens Museum is wheelchair-accessible. Regular hours are Tuesdays, Fridays and the third Saturday of each month, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This program is open to the public, but donations are appreciated.
